DEVELOPMENT OF ST MARY’S OLD SCHOOL
Bunclody Day Care Committee strived for many
years to provide a purpose built Day Care Centre for older people in
Bunclody and its surrounding areas. Unfortunately, for many reasons,
not least the economic downturn, this did not happen. Now however,
we are in the enviable position that we have been offered St. Mary’s
Old School building on Ryland Road by Bunclody Community Resources
Ltd. to adapt to the requirements of a day care centre. The building
has been offered to us at a nominal rent and on a long- term lease.
Bunclody Community Resources was set up to support the local
community and their Board is of the view that this development would
hugely benefit the people of Bunclody.
|Funding the Project
It is hoped to find the project through a number of different finding channels. The committee is at present applying for funding to Wexford Local Development and also the National Lottery. A once off donation of €100,000 donated by Bunclody Community Resources a number of years ago will now be utilised in this project. Lastly fund raising projects will be put in place and to this end the committee will be depending on the generosity of local communities to ensure that this facility becomes a reality.
As you can see from the drawings the facility will include a day room, dining room, sitting room, bathroom, medical room and hairdressing. It is hoped in future years to develop the second story of the building and to expand the facility further at that stage.
The Day Care facility at present in St. Aidan’s Hall operates on two days a week and it would be hoped that this could be increased to four or even maybe five days per week in the new building.
The Committee of Bunclody Day Care believe that after more than 10 years in operation, a suitable facility is a necessity rather than a luxury.
